About
A visit to the Aland Maritime Museum is exciting for children and adults alike. The exhibitions are filled with dramatic stories and fantastic objects, such a genuine 18th century pirate’s flag. There are also lots of interactivities, such as a climbing mast, a bridge simulator and a karaoke. Seadog, landlubber or in between - Aland Maritime Museum has something for everybody.

There is not a lot to see on the island of Aland, but this museum is probably your best option for a couple of hours: easy walking distance from where the cruise ships dock and it has the bonus of including the masted sail ship Pommern in the ticket price.

This was one of the most fascinating and well laid out maritime museums I have had the pleasure to visit in 40 years. Wonderful displays on multi-levels with the additional tour of the merchant ship POMMERN. The ship has a device allowing you to walk the decks, cabins and holds and tells you all about that part of the ship just by walking into the area (available in multiple languages). The store is also reasonably priced with a wide assortment of merchanise.

I'd return here anytime!!! IT was great!!!!

A must see place in Åland. The museum was made for all ages. Something for the older People and something for children. Whenever I visit Åland, I make time for this place.

It’s a small, well-organized museum covering many angles of maritime life, featuring succinct texts in Swedish, Finnish, and English. Everything is well-lit and eminently readable in large fonts at appropriate height.

There is an impressive collection of models of sailing ships of various sizes. But it's not all glamour and nostalgia as the displays about life on board will show you.

A combination ticket is available with the impressive ship Pommern which is docked across a short bridge.

We had a fascinating tour of the museum and then explored the windjammaer Pommern - this was terrific as we saw how the crew lived on board and there was a film giving lots more detail. The museum was very well organised and well worth a visit

A very comprehensive museum, covering the whole of the shipping and sailing history of the region. The only aspects missing are related to steam and later changes in the modern era. For anyone interested in this history, this is a gem.

Excellent review on maritime travel development from Åland perspective. Special focus on sailing boats that is topped with Pommern - early 1900’s built sailing “cargo ship”. We thought to be there something like 2 hours but ended up spending 4. There is lot to see for children as well, so whole family is entertained and educated. Really well set up exhibition.

One of the best Museum I have ever visited. We did not have kids with us but it was a joy to see kids enjoying the tasks what was given to them by Museum. I recommend to TaKe the Audio guide on boat
